Dana Auctions October 2021 Textile Sale
Antique c1845 Mosaic Hexagon Quilt measuring 72 in by 85 in. Mostly wool challis solids and plaid fabric make up each rosette. The color placement of the rosettes create a medallion style effect. The path is beige. There is a narrow Prussian Blue ombre stripe, which is dating the quilt to c1845. It is handpieced and hand quilted. Reverse is pieced with 2 prints: a large scale floral and a madder paisley print. This quilt is poor condition with many of the fabrics in a state of deterioration. It must have been glorious in its original condition with that purple!
